The buildings of the Port of London Authority and the Central Cold Store, near Smithfield Market, London are a reminder of the city’s industrial and commercial past.
Citigen - owned and run by E.ON since 2002 - has generated electricity since 1993 and captured the byproduct heat, sending it off to buildings in London via a tunnel network.
There is no other combined heat and power plant of such scale in the centre of a UK city.
And now E.ON has finished a 3 year, £26m refurbishment which included replacing two unreliable and dirty ship engines with smaller, cleaner gas versions.
